Our architectural lighting sculpture for Sixtyone Restaurant is hard to miss – yet it fits in perfectly with its surroundings.
Designed to resemble hot embers from a grill, the feature uses 600 copper-plated rods mounted on to three large dibond panels, which in turn are fixed within a central coffer. Each rod has a 1W LED that illuminates downwards onto a copper polished sphere – providing “sparkles” of warm light.
Our decision to use LED light was based on the eco-conscious emphasis of the project: just 600W of energy is used altogether, which is half the power needed to boil a kettle.
